The 2016 Andrew Murray "Tous Les Jours" Syrah from the Santa Ynez Valley is 100% Syrah that is aged 9 months in 100% French oak. Perfumed aromas of red and purple fruits lead into a savory palate of black cherry, plum, spicy berries, and blackberry.

"The 2016 Syrah Tous les Jours sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with vibrant raspberry coulis, black cherry and red currant notes with touches of baking spices and roses. The medium to full-bodied palate fills the mouth with spices and red and black fruits, framed by plush, rounded tannins and finishing on a peppery note. This is so different from the previous vintage of this wine and nicely done too!" -LPB, 9/29/18

"The 2016 Syrah Tous les Jours is another highly promising wine from Andrew Murray. Stylistically, the 2016 has a bit more aromatic presence than other recent vintages have shown. Tobacco, savory herb, black pepper and dark Syrah fruit notes are all nicely delineated in this expressive, inviting, budget-friendly Syrah." -AG, Sep/2017

"Always one of the best Syrahs on the broad market for a fair price, this year's Tous les Jours is slightly less exciting than in years past, but still delivers the goods. Aromas of purple flowers and snappy boysenberry lead into a palate that's extremely fresh and vibrant with rounded berry flavors." -MK, 10/1/18
